'Touch comes before sight, before speech. It is the first language and the last, and it always tells the truth.' - Margaret Atwood

Touch is one of our most precious senses. 
Hugging our friends and family is a daily way to maintain our health: it takes 4 hugs a day to survive, 8 to thrive, and 12 to grow*. 

Coordinating time to receive massages on a regular basis has the same effect on our health and wellness.

Touch is one of our most precious senses. 
Hugging our friends and family is a daily way to maintain our health: it takes 4 hugs a day to survive, 8 to thrive, and 12 to grow*. 

Coordinating time to receive massages on a regular basis has the same effect on our health and wellness. 

My grandmothers were a nurse and a teacher, and I have benefitted from what they've taught me about really and truly helping people: observing and listening. They were from a generation that was present and mindful in their duties in ways that our 21st century daily hustle doesn't usually allow for. 

I became a massage therapist because of a need to find a way to hold that presence with people, and a desire to do meaningful work. 
I received my certification requirements from Body Wisdom Massage Therapy School (http://www.bodywisdomschool.com/) and I specialize in several areas: 

-Lymphatic Drainage Massage, a light-medium pressure massage that helps move the body's lymph around, increasing white blood cell count, and helping to naturally "detoxify" the body, 60 or 90 minute sessions.

-Geriatric Massage, a modified massage session that is typically only 20-30 minutes, and focused on areas that are easy to access from a sitting position: the legs below the knees, feet, hands, arms, shoulders, neck, back, and head. Clients are generally in some type of assisted living, and remain fully dressed throughout the session. 

-Deep Tissue Massage, the modality that many people are most familiar with, utilizes long slow strokes as well as trigger-point work. Deep tissue massage is most beneficial in 90 or 120 minute sessions. 



I am an artist, writer, bonus-mom, friend, massage therapist, fanciness consultant.
